Would massively depend on service history, how it's been maintained and general overall condition. Has the cam belt been changed?
It's 100% buyers market at the minute so the slightest doubt or concern I'd walk away. Plenty of known good ones out there - including Pikey wrx/uk/ppp's one in the for sale section.

I would put a bit more money into buying a top notch sti bugeye. There are some real nice bugs for around the 4 grand mark

Judge the other cars you look at by benchmarking against a known good example.
